Outdoor Education Programs are an integral part of learning and plans are made to hold a camp every year if possible. These camps assist students with their ability to cope with the challenge and goals which outdoor education provide - mentally, physically and spiritually.
In May 2017, the Secondary students enjoyed a 3 day trip to the Grampians. They camped at the Stapylton camping ground, whilst completing some hikes up Mount Hollow and Mount Zero over their time there. This was an amazing opportunity and the students had a great time exploring this beautiful part of our country.
In 2016, the students attended a 4 day trip to Tidal River base camp. The students worked together as a team and enjoyed the experience of being close to God's creation as they explored the South Coast beauty of bushland and rugged mountain scenery of Wilsons Promontory.
In 2014 and 2013, the Secondary students completed the The Golfields Track in two stages. In the first year it was a trip from Daylesford to Castlemaine, and then in the second year it was a trip from Bendigo to Castlemaine with each section taking three days. This is quite an extensive track through bushlands with interesting views, old goldfields relics, and the opportunity to stretch yourself personally climbing up and down the hilly country of Central Victoria. A great opportunity for students to learn about their local area in an indepth manner.
In 2012, the Secondary students got up-close and personal with the Great Otway National Park with thanks to a Zipline Tour and Treetop Walk at The Otway Fly. Then after a night out in the outdoors, over the next two days, the students covered an 18.5km stretch of the Great Ocean Walk from Aire River past Johanna Beach. The students then finished up at the site of The Twelve Apostles taking in the vast oceanic views. This was a breathtaking experience for all involved and a real eye opener to God’s magnificent creation and His masterpieces.
